Freezing on Mac OSX Mavericks

Question

I successfully installed OS X Mavericks on my PC with an AMD FX 8350.  

 

Computer boots up fine and I can open and close programs, but a few minutes after booting, the computer freezes and I can't do anything.

 

Mouse freezes, keyboard doesn't work and I have to turn the computer off and turn it back on.

 

Any idea why it's doing this?

It's the computer. When I boot using the flag -x into safe mode, I don't have this problem. Not sure where to start when determining the issue of this.

Hi, same thing happens to me... I have a Pc with an AMD A8 5600k cpu, a Sapphire Radeon HD7770 videocard, 8 GB 1600 mhz ddr3, MSI Fm2-a75ma-e35 motherboard, two internal HHDs (one dedicated to Win, and the other to OS X).

 

I successfully installed OS X Mavericks, but a few seconds after booting my computer freezes and I can't do anything... What could it be? drivers? bios settings?

 

Another weird thing that happens is... in first (second, third...) boot when I do Apple configuration (name, passw, country, etc.), I must do that really fast or I won't be able to boot the system up, if I don't "run" really fast, my mouse arrow and my pc freezes up even during the configuration. What am I doing wrong?

 

Please Niresh, help us!!!

P.S.

bootflags I'm using are:

 

-v PCIRootUID=0 npci=0x3000 GraphicsEnabler=No

 

or

 

-f  GraphicsEnabler=No

 

(they works but when OS X loads, the system freezes up as I mentioned before)

I ended up booting into safe mode with the boot flag -x. Downloaded MultiBeast and installing the Null CPU Power Management Kext and it stopped freezing.

Hi again, in the end I solved everything using bootflag "amd" (without quotation marks) for starting installation.

 

And to start first boot (leaving my Niresh OS X Mavericks USB/DVD mounted) I used bootflag: "Kernel Cache"=amd 

 

And again, if the system won't start after Apple logo, you can try with bootflag: "Kernel Cache"=amd GraphicsEnabler=No

 

If you have two monitors connected to your graphic card(for ex. Radeon HD7xxx) , remember to disconnect HDMI monitor, and to leave connected DVi monitor only.

 

This procedure fixed everything in my case.

    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
